Should you exercise when you’re pregnant? The answer is yes, but there are some things you have to take into account before you start. Exercise and proper conditioning can help with the labor and, certainly, improve overall blood supply to the baby, but woman who are pregnant need to realize that they should not expect to do more than when they were not pregnant. In other words, if you were spending 20 minutes on the treadmill, or working with a trainer at a health club, you can probably continue, but you shouldn’t start radically new programs. Now, here’s what I suggest. First, take advantage of the fact you have an obstetrician and specifically ask about your situation. The other point is if you’re thinking about getting pregnant, start an exercise program now. This will allow you to have a starting point prior to pregnancy. All of these things are important as you begin the road to exercise.
